Share your thoughts about slingshots gentlemen.

1) How are they for hunting?

2) for accuracy and for power?

3) ease of use?

4) Dare I ask, could they be useful for S/D?

5) For target practice and plinking/ having fun with?



Here is a video of a guy who makes his own, this guy makes nice slinshots and good quality videos showing their use in slowmo, enjoy :D

Nostalgia. Like Ka-Khan I made my own and used once I did not have access to my father's air gun in my childhood days. Thereafter the use reduced and then I do not recall when I used them for hunting doves / small birds but for fun purposes I think I used them till 18-19 years of age :)

these GHALIL are very much famous in villages among child..i have also used one for target and fun "shooting".at those times we used to made them with branches of tree specially of SHESHAM,then we attach slings made with old tube from cycles and motor cycles Tyre.
as for as hunting,these are excellent for sparrows doves and pigeons...
there is a guy in my village with age of 40 and i bet that he will hunt more doves with his ghalil than a shot gun...i have witnessed about hundred doves pigeons sparrows and myna in his bag.
@Ka Khan
by the way i am also interested to buy this "PB" weapon.its collection item ;)

this is what i have found about maynah:-



HALAAL AND HARAAM

1. It is not permissible to eat animals and birds that hunt their prey or those animals and birds that eat filthy things. For example, it is haraam to eat lions, wolves, jackals, cats, dogs, monkeys, hawks, falcons, vultures, etc. Those animals that do not fall under this category are halaal. For example, it is halaal to eat parrots, mynahs, doves, sparrows, quails, wild ducks, pigeons, antelopes, buck, ducks, rabbits, etc.

2. It is not permissible to eat badgers, lizards, tortoises, turtles, wasps, mules, donkeys, etc. It is not permissible to eat the meat of a female ass nor is it permissible to drink her milk. It is permissible to eat the meat of horses, but preferable to abstain from it. Among the sea animals, only fish are permissible. All other animals of the sea are haraam.

3. It is permissible to eat fish and locusts without slaughtering them. Apart from these two animals, it is not permissible to eat any animal that has not been slaughtered in the Islamic way. It is haraam to eat an animal that has died a natural death.

4. It is not be permissible to eat a fish if it dies naturally and begins to float on the surface of the water.

5. It is permissible to eat the tripe of halaal animals. It is not haraam to do so, nor makruh.
Go Top

6. If a few small ants or worms die in anything, it will not be permissible to eat that thing without first removing those dead ants or worms. If one or two ants or worms go down the throat, one will get the sin of eating a dead animal. Some people eat wild figs together with the little worms that are found inside thinking that by eating these wild figs they will not be afflicted by evil eyes or evil gazes. This is haraam. They will get the sin of eating a dead animal.

7. It is not permissible to purchase and eat meat that is sold by a non-Muslim even if he claims that he had it slaughtered by a Muslim. However, if the Muslim who slaughtered it remains in the presence of the non-Muslim all the time until all the meat is sold, it will be permissible to consume such meat. Alternatively, the person who slaughtered the meat could call another Muslim to keep watch over it until all the meat is sold. At no time should any Muslim absent himself from that meat.

8. A fowl or chicken that eats a lot of filthy things should be encaged for three days and only after that should it be slaughtered and eaten. It is makruh to eat such a fowl without encaging it for three days.

Did some shooting with my Barnett slingshot.. Target was at 20 yards and the BB penetration was quite good as it went through a fruit crate.. accuracy was good too.
